Throughout this class, keep in mind a cowboy's wisdom:
"Good judgement comes from experience."
You may ask, "How do I get experience?" Bad judgement works every time.
My point? Don't be afraid to make mistakes in this class,
but make sure you learn from them!
- REMINDER: All files should be submitted to WebCT. Only
the script should be printed and submitted to me directly.
- Lab 11 is due Friday, depending on your lab.
- Please run all script programs in the XTerm instead of in Emacs.
Otherwise, I can't read the input.
A lot of you are having the same problems. Make sure you
- Initialize variables.
- Write comments that clearly describe what you're trying to do.
- Print out your variables at intermediate steps to catch bugs sooner.
Note: The rubrics have been removed so that other classes
can use the same assignments.
Suggestions for Success
- If you email me a programming question, it's a good idea to send
me your program and the error that you're getting. I can rarely
guess what exact problem you're having without seeing the code.
- Read the lab before coming to class.
- After completing a lab, review the lab's goals to make sure
you understand what you were supposed to get out of the lab.
